I am loving the breakfast recipes in Jamie Oliver's Everyday Super Food book. My third breakfast recipe from that book is the Figgy Banana Bread. The recipe is posted here, but I recommend buying the book so that you can see the full range of recipes - they are innovative, delicious and healthier than the norm.
What was surprising about this recipe is that there is no added sugar - all the sweetness comes from dried figs, ripe bananas and apple. There is also a lovely crunch from almonds and poppy seeds. It is simply delicious! Who knew that a cake could be so sweet without added sugar.
I served this cake plain - I skipped the blood orange butter that Jamie makes in the book. I think it is lovely on its own, though you can make the blood orange butter, or use nut butter, or perhaps serve it with yoghurt. Whichever way you like it, I recommend making this figgy banana bread.
